A group of Long Island, N.Y., teenagers were walking past a park on their way to school on the morning of Feb. 29 when they found a man's left arm.

"One of the students called their father," Suffolk County Police Detective Lt. Kevin Beyrer said at a news conference later that day. "The father responded, confirmed it was an arm on the side of the road and he called 911."

But by the time the detective was addressing reporters, there was more than one body part to account for.

The kids spotted the arm sticking out of a bush on the eastern side of picturesque Southards Pond Park in Babylon Village shortly before 9 a.m., according to details provided by Beyrer and a police news release. Homicide Squad detectives responded to the scene and, during a canvass of the 19-acre park, a police dog sniffed out a leg under a pile of leaves almost a mile away from where the arm was found.

The same dog later found a right arm in the woods, only about 20 feet away from the left arm, per the release.

"There's a mound of leaves," Beyrer told reporters. "We don't know what's going to be under the mound. Once we clear the mound we may find the remainder of the body or we may not."

Beyrer said it looked as if the limbs had been dumped in the park recently. Autopsy results were pending and they were hoping to use DNA and tattoo analysis—at least one of the arms had ink—to make an identification, he noted.
